The deadline for voting for the 25th edition of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards is just weeks away on June 12, and this year two Koyama Press titles are nominated. Lose #4 by Michael DeForge, a comic that blends the banal with the bizarre to create a mélange that is filled with horror and discomfort, humanity and humour, is nominated for Best Single Issue (or One-Shot). The Infinite Wait and Other Stories by Julia Wertz, a collection of comics that contain Wertz’s signature acerbic wit, ribald humour and keen eye for the everyday, but also find the cartoonist delving into the personal, is nominated for Best Reality-Based Work. Comics industry professionals including creators, publishers, educators, librarians, and comic store owners and managers are eligible to vote. If you fall into one of these categories please consider voting. This year the voting is exclusively online and really convenient; you can access the ballot here.
The winners will be announced on July 19 at Comic-Con International. Happy Voting!
